The Employment Non-Discrimination Act, a bill that would ban hiring and employment discrimination against LGBT individuals, will proceed in the Senate after 61 senators voted for a cloture motion that will lead to a final vote on the bill. Maryland Senators Barbara A. Mikulski and Ben Cardin were among the legislators to vote "yes" on cloture, which limits the amount of time ENDA can be debated before a final vote on the measure is eventually held.  Seven Republicans voted in support of the bill: ENDA co-sponsors Sens.

ATLANTA -- As a college student, attending the Senate Judiciary Committee's hearing on the future of Napster is a little bit like eavesdropping on your parents when they discuss what they should do about a fight you had with your younger brother. They know little about the situation (and probably don't care), they have all the power and there's a good chance you could end up losing one of your favorite toys if your brother cries loud enough. In the case of Napster, Sen. Orrin G. Hatch, R-Utah, wants to be your daddy, 20 million people stand to lose a toy that is also a boon to their lives and, for good measure, Lars Ulrich of Metallica plays the part of the whining tot. As I sat through hours of political posturing from all sides at the hearing earlier this summer, I was able to console myself with the knowledge that no matter what the committee decides to do to Napster and its users, there will still be plenty of free music on the Internet when classes resume next month.

DES MOINES -- For Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, it might have seemed that at last his lonely battle for attention in his long-shot bid for the Republican presidential nomination was beginning to bear fruit. He stood before an array of television cameras in the auditorium of the Principal Insurance Group here Wednesday and spoke for more than an hour as the large audience of employees listened intently. Mr. Hatch was eloquent as he recited his long experience in the Senate, including special missions for the GOP's icon, President Reagan, unmatched by any of the other five Republicans seeking support of Iowans in Monday night's precinct caucuses.

WASHINGTON -- President Clinton may not be the best politician on the field these days, but he is certainly the luckiest.Consider, for example, the clumsiness Senate Republicans are displaying in trying to kill the nomination of Bill Lann Lee to be assistant attorney general for civil rights. They are following a strategy that fails the smell test on both policy and politics.The policy argument is a familiar one. Sen. Orrin Hatch, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, has been arguing, in effect, that Mr. Lee should not head the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division because he has been too aggressively committed to affirmative action policies Mr. Hatch does not approve.

WASHINGTON -- Herewith two snapshots, taken last week less than 24 hours apart, of Congress during what Republicans advertise as the rigors of re-limiting the government.On a slow Senate afternoon, C-SPAN2 is covering the antitrust subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee. A handsome, nattily attired, solidly assembled young man is testifying, with lucidity and dignity and feeling, about what he and some sympathetic senators consider an injustice requiring congressional attention.He was a wide receiver on last year's University of Wyoming football team, which had a 10-2 record in the Western Athletic Conference but did not get invited to a bowl game.

American Bar Association officials said yesterday they had found Alexander Williams Jr. unqualified for a federal judgeship in Maryland because he lacks substantial trial experience, exhibited poor legal writing and had overstated his courtroom work.But Mr. Williams' supporters packed a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing room to rally behind him,emphasizing his varied experience as a law professor, county prosecutor and private attorney. While he may lack time with a high-powered law firm, he has been busy for 21 years practicing "people law," the committee was told.
